Vectors Chapter 3: Vectors Conceptual problems 3.C.7 (5.00) A small crab fishing boat travels from Colon City on the Pacific Ocean, through the Panama Canal, to Panama City on the Atlantic Ocean. A large cruise ship travels from Colon City to Panama City by sailing all the way around the Cape Horn at the southern tip of South America. Do these two voyages have equal displacement vectors? Yes No (0/1 submissions used) Section 0: Introduction 3.0.1 (5.00) Use the simulation in the interactive problem in Section 3.0 to answer the following questions. Assume that the simulation is reset before each part and give each answer in the form ( x , y ). (a) What is the displacement to Ed's Fuel Depot? (b) What is the displacement to Joe's Diner? (c) What is the displacement to Silver's Gym? (a) ( (0/6 submissions used) km, (0/6 submissions used) km) (b) ( (0/6 submissions used) km, (0/6 submissions used) km) (c) ( (0/6 submissions used) km, (0/6 submissions used) km) Section 1: Scalars 3.1.1 (5.00) The Earth has a mass of 5.97×10 24 kg. The Earth's Moon has a mass of 7.35×10 22 kg. How many Moons would it take to have the same mass as the Earth? (0/6 submissions used) Section 3: Polar notation 3.3.1 (5.00) The tugboat Lawowa is returning to port for the day. It has a speed of 7.00 knots. The heading to the Lawowa's port is 37.0° west of north. If due east is 0°, what is the tug's heading as a vector in polar notation? ( (0/6 submissions used)
